Oh, joy. The City of Cleveland just won the competition to host the 2014 Gay Games. Here’s the relevant audio from the first two hours of last night’s Bob Frantz Show:
I don’t see the point in creating a homosexualized version of the Olympics. If someone’s an Olympic caliber athlete, they can compete in the Olympics. Their sexual tastes have nothing to do with it.
Who wants to crow about winning some event at a politicized athletic gathering that has no qualification standards whatsoever? For goodness’ sake, the Gay Games are “not oriented to victory” … whatever that means.
Every time I think Cleveland has sunk to a new low in punch-line-worthiness, the city breaks out a shovel and digs some more.
